once upon a time, Beckett prices were based on actual sales in card shops and at shows...it is a little harder to do that with ebay because do you base it on the last sale? the highest and lowest recent (and for that you have to define recent) sale? the average sale?
I know people looking to buy are always going to point to the lowest sale they can find.
And dont get me wrong, I agree that Beckett pricing is fantasy at this point but everyone has different criteria of how they determine a card's value based on ebay too...
